The porcupinity of the stars by Gary Barwin( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
In this much-anticipated new collection, poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work 'so compelling is Barwin's balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder, and the shifting, often perplexing nature of conscio
Indexical elegies by Jon Paul Fiorentino( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
With links to intense poetic works like John Berryman's Dream Songs, Gilbert Sorrentino's Corrosive Sublimate and Erin Moure's Furious, Jon Paul Fiorentino's new collection is a whip-smart poetic investigation of anxiety in all its many manifestations. Anxiety caused by geography, anxieties of influence and looming worries about loss inform the poems as they weave narrative threads and associations that highlight both the treachery of language and its necessity in shaping human experience: 'All roads, side roads/all text, signage/All seasons, autumn/ all memories
A complete encyclopedia of different types of people by Gabe Foreman( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People is not your average reference book. It turns a series of sociological case studies into a functional encyclopedia that doubles as an achingly funny collection of poems. "Bridesmaids," "Day Traders," and "Number Crunchers" are all dutifully cataloged in a series of luminously strange, compellingly original lyric and prose poems
Neighbour procedure by Rachel Zolf( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
A virtuoso polyvocal correspondence with the daily news, ancient scripture and contemporary theory that puts the ongoing conflict in Israel/Palestine firmly in the crosshairs, Neighbour Procedure sees Zolf assemble an arsenal of poetic procedures and words borrowed from a cast of unlikely neighbours, including Mark Twain, Dadaist Marcel Janco, blogger-poet Ron Silliman and two women at the gym
Clockfire by Jonathan Ball( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
Talented newcomer Jonathan Ball's Clockfire is a suite of poetic blueprints for imaginary plays that would be impossible to produce - plays in which, for example, the director burns out the sun, actors murder their audience, and the laws of physics are flagrantly violated. The poems in one sense replace the need for drama, and are predicated on the idea that modern theatre lacks both 'clocks' and 'fire' and thus fails to offer its audiences immediate, violent engagement. They sometimes resemble the scores for Fluxus 'happenings, ' but they replace the casual aesthetic and DIY simplicity of Flux
Divide and rule by Walid Bitar( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
In Walid Bitar's fifth collection, the trauma of the West's invasion of and violent collision with the Arab world blows through these witty, wise, multi-referenced and caustic poems like a desert sandstorm, but Bitar's real battle is with the torment at the heart of human thought and language language - never at peace, at home nowhere, never sated

A documentary about the life and times of Reverend Troy Perry, founder of the Metropolitan Community Church, the first church to recognize the spiritual needs of the gay community.

Match by Helen Guri( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
Robert Brand has given up on real women. Relationships just haven't ever worked out well for him. He has, however, found a (somewhat problematic) solution, a new feminine ideal: the 110-pound sex doll he ordered over the internet. Showing an uncanny access to the voice of the rejected, unimpressive, emotionally challenged modern male, Helen Guri's debut collection explores Robert's transition from lost and lonely to loved

The brave never write poetry by Daniel Jones( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
First published in 1985, when Daniel Jones was just twenty-six, The Brave Never Write Poetry, the poet/critic/novelist's lone collection of poems, was a cult hit, turning 'poetry' on its head before its author (then known simply as 'Jones') swore off verse entirely ... This long overdue revised edition brings Jones's unforgettable voice to a new generation of readers and includes the complete text of the original collection (including Jones' own sardonic assessments of his own poetry), a new preface by poet/critic Kevin Connolly, and postscript commentary from many of Jones' closest friends and literary colleagues. --Coach House Books
